Firewolves of Io ~ Ra Patera!

FireWolf Io Showing Ra Patera Flare  Azure-blue flare Ra Patera! Fire Wolves of Io! The huge volcanic plume – Ra Patera – erupted into the night sky in an explosive maelstrom of crackling fire-born azure flares, streaming across space from Io into the skies of Jupiter. An urban Fire wolf started and sat bolt upright, still and alert in an alien night whilst the flare lighting up the urban skyline burst dramatically across the night sky high above the sulphur-drizzled “Plains of Io.”

Firewolf of Io and Jupiter

Deep in the heart of the galactic urban dance scene the thunderous roar of the cosmic sound systems resonated in a frenzy of solar city magic, firing a dark alien fire wolf driven by an erotic moon fantasy, whirling into a state side rhythmic of burning star-flared erotica, seductive and full of night promise.


Io Moon Fire Wolf_Star of the Celestial WolfIt caught the commanding call of the Alpha, “The Great Star-Wolf” as it echoed across galactic space, its quality of sound resonating in a haunting array of pitches and tones, boomeranging to the minds of each and every Wolf Breed, carrying with it the colourful signature notes of their ascendant – the one known as “Star of the Celestial Wolf.”

It twisted and flared in flashes of burnt-gold sliding through Io’s shimmering moon-shadows dancing in the volcanic night glow, blending with the leaping azure plume that originated from Io’s large shield volcano, the feature known as, “Ra Patera.” The Fire Wolves call to the stars, the sky alight with charged plumes of icy fire. The world in awe.

The interstellar star cruiser slid silently betweenIo_Jup_RaPWolf worlds, a vast tourist in a sea of suns, slipping across jewelled solar systems and through rain-bowed ring systems to capture, for a moment, the beauty of their worlds. Infra-red rose in auroral bands across the rock strewn world of Io – moon of Jupiter – a wildly exotic world, of sulphur-coated vistas and violently active sulphur volcanoes. An alien world of lava flows and lava lakes, of huge calderas and mountains soaring many times loftier than any seen on Earth.

Urban moon-stars flared in dancing diamonds of desert fire as the night sky went supernova lighting up the dance floor of galactic moon shine. And the Sirian-black masked Fire Wolf whirled to the heart beat of the universe, spinning in an eternal rap, the music of the urban stars leading it in the endless rhythm of the solar night. Fire Wolf of Io, melting and blending in the light and shadows of the music of the cosmos, piped on the sound systems of streaming moon dreams, the strobing drum, the beating pulse of solar winds, leading the dance floor of eternity.

In the midst of the colourful and radiant cloud belts surrounding Jupiter, roiling storms raged, the tumultuous Jovian atmosphere possessing of a chaotic and ever-changing beauty that interacted with swirling hurricanes and wild wind-storm systems.

Space was alive with an interstellar light show that threw an opera of rain-bowed lights dancing over the cruiser’s external surface shields. Seen from space they were ablaze with a flaming azure glow.

Star struck viewers watched the display in awed bemusement as the Ra Patera plume burst in burning sun-blue lights fromIo showing flare, close up and crater area the outlandish multi-coloured surface, surging and tumbling through Io’s tenuous atmosphere, streaming across space and exploding through Jupiter’s own swirling, turbulent atmosphere, and the dozens of interacting storm systems before curving out towards IoWolfFantasy3Interstellar space.

Eddying and churning, whirling and twisting, blasts of light bent into rotating loops and spirals coiling across the stars in a whirlpool of exotic silver and exotic electric-azure waterfalls. A shimmying, fiery vortex intimately entwined with the life-force of the Fire Wolf of Io.




Fire is mysteriously powerful, passionate and concentrated. It is fundamental and essential. It filters into the very elements of that which it comes into contact with, and it somehow blends with every particle ~ refining and purifying but also bringing pain, suffering, anguish. The more advanced and complex the integrity of character the more elevated the pleasure but how greatly torturous the pain inflicted, burning with an intensity that in that moment seems like it will consume and destroy us. But in the moment we cease to fear the fire that moment it ceases to harm us.

  1. Exciting!

  2. Very nice. Keep up the great work 🙂 So how did you come by your particular user name?

    • Thank you my friend! And re my username: (this was the briefest explanation I could manage! 😉 ) Wolves are one of the world’s most fascinating animals and the wild beauty of these haunting creatures of the night captures the human imagination in 1000 different ways. Europa is a unique and fascinating ice world and to date is unlike anything else found in the inner solar system. It is also one of a rare number of locations in our galaxy with an environment where it is possible that life may exist. Its surface is one of the brightest and smoothest in the galaxy and the only place in the solar system besides Earth where liquid water exists in significant quantities.

      In Greek mythology Europa was a beautiful Phoenician princess and one of Zeus, the “god of the skies and thunder’s” lovers. Sirius (the dog star) known as “Moon Dog” and “Wolf Star” was one of the dogs given to Europa as a gift and a guardian. From the blending of these concepts the username “Europa’s Icewolf” was created 🙂

  3. Haunting and beautiful imagery Wolfie, love it, I am very impressed, condsider it one of your best pieces of writing

    • HooOOOOOWWWWWwwwwwwLLLLLLLLLLoooooo! Thanks my great friend Rosemary, sharer of the Wolf Spirit and the Calling of the Wolf-song! If I have your vote of confidence then I am a very happy Icewolf! BTW…You have arrived back just in time for tonight’s hunt 😉 I am sure your presence will guarantee the finest of hunts and the most bountiful and best of catches so far this season!! 🙂

  4. Merhaba benim tatlı arkadaşım Buz :))
    sizi çok özledim
    umarım iyiyisinizdir
    güzel dostluk adına teşekkür ederim
    iyi geceler ve tatlı rüyalar
    çok kucak dolusu sevgilerle

  5. Wünsche dir einen schönen Tag das sind ja ihre aufnahmen super Grüsse dich lieb und wünsche einen schönen Tag Gislinde

    • Vielen Dank meiner lieben große Freundin Gislinde!
      Schönes für Sie und Ihre große Kommentar sehen 🙂
      Haben Sie einen schönen Tag in Cologne
      und ein glückliches und friedliches Nacht
      Liebe und umarme mein Freund 🙂

  6. Wow this one is a wicked one Icywolfy of the Icy Realm
    and what a great font too, that yellow really stands out and
    enhances the graphics too 🙂 You know if you send me this
    background graphic I could resize it so that you have the
    full picture (of course you can do that too, if you like? 🙂 ) lol
    How do you mean I am being a tad cheeky? 🙂 lol Well I only
    said you know… This posting is really interesting Icywolfy
    and so brilliantly added also 🙂 I hope you are enjoying the
    evening and not being too naughty for a change 🙂 lol

    Androgoth XXx

    • Greetings Androgoth 🙂 I trust all is wickedly well in the land of the Gothic Realm tonight, that the tomb stones are tidy and weeded and the are coffin lids safely locked down for the day…until nightfall when the real Vampire misbehaving will begin! lol 🙂 Thank you for your generous comment, I’m pleased you liked my fiery font colour! Thank you also for your thoughtful offer re the background graphic 🙂 Always good to know the Gothic Realm is thinking of my Icewolfie neck, I mean of me 😉 The actual original graphic is larger than the one on my blog but this theme doesn’t allow for full page backgrounds. It just gives various options for tiling, although I think it’s quite effective with this particular image, but I really appreciate you thinking of it 🙂 I don’t think you’re cheeky for suggesting it, on the contrary I think it was a very kind and thoughtful gesture from a great friend, and I offer you a special Icewolfie thank you for that 🙂 Oh…and I’m never naughty as you know lol so no idea where you got that idea from!! 😉 😀

      • Just calling round with a few ice pops
        it is sooooooooooo hot tonight Icywolfy 🙂
        Did I mention that it is my F1 this weekend
        and that I will be glued to the telly in the
        hope that Michael Schumacher will be on
        the podium 🙂 Okay so Jenson and Louis
        have a good chance also but as I am an
        avid Schumacher fan I will be happy if he
        can regain some status from his earlier
        career with the mighty Ferrari but with a
        Mercedes this time around 🙂 😉 lol

        I have left you a few dusters and a can of
        Vampy polish so that you can regain your
        own brand of… Well just get polishing that
        lid or else? 🙂 😉 lol Have fun now 🙂

        Thank you for your excellent thoughts on my
        Riff-Raff posting, you are right of course 🙂 😉

        Androgoth XXx

      • Very welcome ice pops thanks, I am melting into my keyboard 🙂 I think you may have mentioned F1 weekend lol…I knew you would be anyway…one of my landlord’s sons works on the F1 cars – bodywork/paintwork…he’s Italian…;) There’s a big McLarens near us…they sometimes test drive the cars round here…they move pretty quick!! Best of luck to Michael Schumacher 🙂 May the best man win 🙂 And forget the polishing lol…it’s far too hot and sticky! Have an awesome time with your F1 🙂

      • It is only hot and sticky in uniform
        and as it is sooooo hot you may as
        well go commando, the skellies are
        not usually peeping toms so you are
        okay… I think 🙂 lol

        Androgoth XXx

      • 🙂 Oh I fully intend to go commando! Nothing else for it in this heat 😉 lol Just be sure to keep those skellies at bay!

      • I have them under lock and key so no need to worry
        about Skeletons… bones or anything else either 🙂 🙂
        I have left a mini fridge with a stash of Iceypops, all
        expertly iced ready for your approval 🙂 lol

        Have a wonderfully wicked weekend Icywolfy 🙂

  7. Härlig underbar blogg wolfie den gillar jag verkligen..
    Tummen upp för din vackra blogg..
    men nu undrar jag har du någon facebook wolfie..
    Hoppas det kram på dig //Nicki

    • Tack Nicki! Och tack för att du tog dig tid för att ha lite titt på min eld vargar!
      Jag är mycket nöjd och glad att veta att du gillade det 🙂
      Ja, jag har en Facebook. Jag kommer att ringa in på din WordPress med detaljerna

      Kram och Wolfie kyssa 🙂

  8. Stunning imagery!

    • HoooOOOOOOOOWWWWwwwwWWWWWWLLLLLLLLLooooooooo Clowie!! Thank you for lovely comment and for calling in 🙂 Great to see you and welcome to the Pack! You have a fantastic blog, I looked in earlier from my phone and stayed to read it far longer than I should have done whilst at work 😉 I look forward to reading more!

      • Thank you for your kind words, I’m glad you liked it. I enjoyed visiting yours very much and will be back again soon.

  9. Wow Wolfie! an amazing spring time fantasy (or is it real?).
    curious vocabulary; well written, great pictures

    • HhhOOOoooooooWWWWWWwwwwLLLLLoooooo! IceWolfie greetings from the homeworld of Europa, Eddie! Or am I hailing from volcanic neighbouring moon of Io? … lol 😉 There is a very fine line between fantasy and reality…one that should be trodden very carefully. But then again, today’s fantasies can very easily become tomorrow’s realities…
      Great to know you enjoyed this post! Thanks for your visit to volcanic Io 😉 Hope you’re enjoying the sulphuric suntan too!! Wolfie hugs 🙂 x

      • Understand what you mean when talking about fantasy becoming reality. Have had a many a fantasy become real.
        Pisces are the so called ‘dreamer’.

      • What are we without dreams? I dream of cities in the sky, worlds beyond the stars…

        “The greater cats with golden eyes
        Stare out between the bars.
        Deserts are there, and different skies,
        And night with different stars.”
        ~ Vita Sackville-West

  10. Have a nice weekend My Friend..
    Hugs kisses //Nicki

    • Hej Nicki 🙂 Det är början av vår drottningens diamant jubileumsfirandet i helgen… Vi har två helgdagar på måndag, och en på tisdag 🙂 Hon har varit regerande i sextio år så jag tycker att vi borde ha sextio helgdagar för att fira! Det kommer att finnas många parter, och jag hoppas få se henne i London som hon seglar längs Themsen … i regnet förväntar jag mig! Jag önskar er en härlig helg!
      Krama och kyssa på näsan! 😉

  11. Liebe Freundin Wünsche dir ein wunderschönes sonniges Pfingsten und Grüsse lieb Gislinde

    • Guten Abend meine süße Freundin Gislinde 🙂 Es ist der Anfang unserer Königin Diamant-Jubiläum an diesem Wochenende. Wir haben zwei Feiertagen am Montag und am Dienstag 🙂 Sie für sechzig Jahre gewesen ist amtierende so denke ich, sollten wir sechzig Feiertage zu feiern haben! Es wird viele Parteien sein, und ich hoffe, sie in die Hauptstadt zu sehen, wie sie segelt entlang der Themse … im regen, erwarte ich! Ich wünsche Ihnen ein schönes Wochenende! Wölfe Umarmung 🙂

  12. Are you ever going to add a new Guestbook Icywolfy? 🙂 😉 🙂
    Oh yes and be good too because I know how wicked you can
    be on the weekend, especially on those girlie nights out 🙂 lol

    Androgoth XXx

    • The vampishly simple and very easily understood answer to your ghoulishly gothic queries is NO!! lol 😉 And as to my wickedness on weekends…”you aint seen nothin’ yet!!! HoooOOOOOOWWWWWwwwwLLLLoooooooooooL!! Happy biting!

      • Okay I got it ‘NO GB’s 😦 lol)
        but do have a very wicked time
        over your weekend Icywolfy 😉

        or Else? 🙂 lol

        Androgoth XXx

      • Oh my gothic Wolfie paw! My howl has finally been understood! … Took long enough 😉 lol 😀 Have a great weekend and do enjoy a right royal gothic knees up! 🙂

  13. very dramatic blog icey i know havent been around for a while but im trying to drag myself here hope your enjoying the summer xjen

    • Very good of you to drag yourself here jen! This blog always benefits from a touch of goth every so often lol 😉 Nice to know you haven’t frazzled your vampirish self in the sun yet! Do take care on that count won’t you 😉 Seeing as my icy paws have been melting in the heat I haven’t been here much recently myself. So it could be said that I too dragged myself here! lol…been thinking about joining you under the coffin lid till sundown of late…going from thermal undies to commando overnight as winter switched so dramatically to summer has proved a wolfishly overwhelming for a little icy!! 🙂 Wolfie hugs to Ozzie 🙂 x

  14. Wow what a post.. loved it Wolfie.. seems Im on catch up mode again!.. but what a catch up. Loved all your photos and creations Wolfie, you have been busy.. Love to you my Icewolfie friend

    • Oooh…is that you in your profile pic?! Woo hooo! Are we getting a little glimpse of our great friend Dreamwalker then? 😉 Thank you for your kind comment too and yes lol…this one did keep me busy…too busy! I too am on catch up, at least here, blog visits will likely have to begin from the latest or I’ll never catch up at all 🙂 you know how it is lol…I wonder if you, like me have been melting in the sun? Gave up on visiting blogs till the temperature dropped. Between the heat in the room and the heat the laptop was emitting my poor little USB modem was in danger of going up in flames! I prefer not to burn it out just yet! Have a lovely weekend and a big Icewolfie hug too…at least one of those is nice and cooling!! x

      • Yes the sun and other things have kept me away my great four-legged friend.. 🙂 and yes Dreamwalker has ‘come-out’ 🙂 ( as for the heat on the laptop I perchased myself one of those tray fans which works really well.. .
        The Sun has been sooo good.. I see we are right back again to good old British Bank Holiday Weather again.. But the Gardens have been in need of the rain showers here..
        Have a Great Weekend.. and I know you will be catching up when you can. Im always playing catchup x Hugs Wolfie.. ~Dreamwalker 🙂 in the flesh! 😉

      • Aww! You look lovely! that’s a great photo of you 🙂 Been thinking about those tray fans myself but got sidetracked footing the bill for renewing my security software…quite enough to bring anyone out in a hot sweat that is!! No rain here yet, they’ve been threatening it for days but hasn’t broken yet and we don’t want the Queen to get a royal soaking on the Thames boat ride on Sunday do we 😉 See you on catch-up Dreamy one! x

      • Have a great weekend too Wolfie, and no growling at those Corgies! And Thank you 🙂 xx

  15. Hi Timid one …. Have dragged myself off the sofa and am visiting places I have not been for a long while. This is a great post T/O. but that is nothing new. Still missing Cherno and don’t feel like obtaining a new dog yet. I have a new found freedom and plus the carry on with doctors and hospitals at the mo. I am not sure i ever shall take on another dog at all. Sounds odd coming from me I know. But times are changing and so am I . Bit long in the fang now me thinks to take on all the responsibility of owning a dog.
    Take care Timid one, and keep up the good work. Your blog is looking great.

    • HooOOOOOoWWWwwwwLLLLoooooOOOOOOO Hewhorunsfasterthanthewind >>>>>>Well! Just look at that! A “right royal” lol diamond jubilee dust storm those supersonic paws of yours have kicked up on my blog page as you careered gracefully out the other side of it Cough…choke…splutter!! lol None the less it was a lovely surprise to find you had paid a visit, great to see you again and thank you for your generous comment Don’t know about you being a bit long in the fang though…mind you…the longer the fang the bigger the bite!! So not all bad if you were I do understand about the “new found freedom” and it will do you good especially as you say re the doctors and hospitals at this time. I think you’re being very sensible and if more people understood just how much responsibility is attached to dog ownership they might think twice about getting one and fewer dogs would end up in rescue shelters or dumped and abandoned. So good on you Hewhorunsfasterthanthewind…of course…once you’re back on track health wise, as I know you will be, and your worries are behind you, as I am certain they will be in due course, then a new furry K9 friend to help ease you through the sadness of losing Cherno, and to brighten you days, may perhaps start to take on a new appeal…;) Just saying! In the meantime chin up! Armour on! Sword primed! And get that enemy “licked!” Take care Hewhorunsfasterthanthewind and stay strong! (Whew…ridiculously long reply this isn’t it?!! ) Timid one!

  16. Wünsche einen schönen Sonntag und eine sonnige Woche Gruss von mir Gislinde

  17. Have a great evening Icywolfy and stop snarling at all my Vamps
    you know they don’t take too kindly to being hunted down Alpha
    female style, especially in My Gothic Realm but as you have been
    good lately I will let you off this time 🙂 😉 lol

    Just don’t take forever adding a new posting here or else? 😉 🙂

    Androgoth XXx

    • They snarled first!! I’m not about to roll over and offer them my throat now am I?!! lol 😉

      • Nooooo but you could join in and have a bit of the Red stuff with us, a sort of happy meal for all my wonderful great friends 🙂 😉 You can be the Alpha Female Wolf of honour, just as long as you don’t bite anyone’s bum during the musical chairs and pass the skeletons bone 🙂 lmao

        Androgoth XXx

      • Ok…. 🙂 Since I think I can sense a less than entirely happy and amused Vampire of the Gothic Realm behind those apparently light-hearted comments and a decidedly non-too-happy one in the previous comment 😉 then I defer to your alpha gothic vampirelyness 😉 especially since I am on your territory and not my own and humbly offer my Wolfie throat to the Great Gothic Alpha Vampire of the Gothic Realm and request forgiveness for my insubordination…no offence intended so perhaps you could spare the Icewolfie throat on this occasion? I may need it to swallow the plentiful supplies of Red Stuff that will hopefully be offer alongside the Gothic Happy Meal 🙂 Oh wolf…I can imagine what ingredients are in that! 😉 and in return I will remove the Icewolfie fangs for the night 🙂 ..With respectful Icewolfie submission….Wary Icewolfie 🙂 ,

      • Absolutely no hostility intended and as we are waiting to start the
        party of The Skeleton’s Bone why not pad over and grab a glass of
        the Sparkling Nymph, it is an old Transylvanian sweetener but with
        a hint of Ghoul surprise, followed by some Champagne and sweet
        looking Caviar, not too salty for your liking and with a slice of Gothy
        Toast it is delicious…Now how about that for a welcome? 🙂 😉

        Androgoth XXx

      • Wicked! On my way right now! Party of the Skeleton’s Bone lol here I come 😉

      • Well I haven’t even written it yet but maybe it will appear soon 🙂 lol The Skeleton I mean cheeky 😉 lol

        Androgoth XXx

      • You must be very quick about it Oh Great Master Vampire of the Darkest Most Wicked Gothic Realm lol…Icewolfie is travelling at great speed up hill and down dale to reach the Party of the Skeleton’s Bone! lol 😉
